          Best thing to do is to make sure that you're port fowarding both UDP and TCP ports to your Slingbox's private IP address on your router's firewall.

           

          Otherwise, it could be that the hotspot or service provider is blocking or using that port for their own nefarious purposes.  You can change the Slingbox default port from 5001 to something more common like 80 (HTTP) or 443 (HTTPS).  If this is necessary, make sure you readjust your router's port forwarding rules to match the new port number.
